Google Apps is no longer free

Google Apps, aka G-Suite , hasn’t been free for a while but it takes time for things like this to percolate into the system. It doesn’t help there are two names for it. That just adds to misunderstandings and confusions. It is a widely held belief that Google things are free. Chrome is free. G-Mail is free. Google search engine is free. Google Apps were free but have now gone down the path of being paid. We live in a world where you can become dependent on a free version of something and then you are brought up short. Many things still continue to run limited free versions of something but that may well pass. We are caught up in a perception which was built as we increasingly got to use the internet. Times have changed.

G-Suite is designed for teams and business and Google Apps for Business can be very helpful to small business. It is something Google has addressed now. It was supporting individuals and companies but now there is something for the small organisation or business. Google also has become very competitive on the cloud computing market and it has to in order to survive. Lifehacker looks at the situation to help you think out the work arounds and whether there are implications which will affect you.

As an individual the priced apps won’t affect you since you have to register as a business or organisation with your own domain name. Lifewire explains the changes and how they may or may not affect you so that you can continue to make good decisions as to which aspects of Google you wish to use.

Google Australia Blog

Google Search for your SocksGoogle has an official Australia blog which is not without a sense of humour. On 1/4/2016 there was a post about the new bluetooth enabled technology to find lost socks. They know us well. Odd socks is surprisingly a topic of conversation more often than you would think in Australia. It can create a lot of mirth. We often want to know the trick of keeping socks paired. We regularly have odd socks days at fundraisers. Odd socks are a part of our culture. The blog offers a good deal of information about Google in Australia and some of the ideas and software Google now has to make good use of its online offerings. The blog is worth bookmarking so you keep up to date with what Google is doing here – besides having us on.

Get Google Goggles!

The video explains it all. If you have an Android phone with camera or an iPhone you can get Google Goggles and search by image.This has some interesting possibilities when you are travelling, don’t speak the language or don’t know what it is you are looking at. It has classroom application ,too. One of the science teachers was telling me there was a picture in the Science book and they didn’t know what it was. One of his students searched by image on Google and found it was a pin with bacteria on it. That was great classroom use of mobile technology. It was also a very teachable moment. Students don’t necessarily relate to bacteria on a pin or any other object. Finding out what that image gave a great opportunity to explain how easy it is to be infected with bacteria and the image made it obvious. We were then talking about how you could then get a series of images related to something you really wanted students to understand and get them to use their mobiles to hunt the images down and make it very genuine 21st Century discovery learning. Google Goggles is still being developed so it will get better the more we use it and the longer we have it.
